Ex-Mod Center Light Switch to MUD UK Dash?

I am wondering how hard it is to take the ex-mod light wiring with the round dial for the headlights and change it to a mud uk style dash?

Very cool. Let us know how hard it was when you're done!

I haven't done it yet. I'm looking into how difficult this would be. Anyone try this yet?

Yes, someone did that, look under "smaller projects" there is a post from July 17 this year with some pictures.

I'm considering doing it myself, but it's way down the list of priorities.

You missed the sarcasm of his post.

I didn't know you had to cut the lower dash to install those mud consoles. That scares me because lower dashes are expensive.

I was under the impression that no cutting was necessary. I'm scared now too.

I haven't installed one of these, but the install instructions are available at the manufacturer's website. Looks to me as though you wouldn't have to cut the dash if you didn't want to, but by not cutting the dash you wouldn't have any room to put anything in the lower DIN slot. Not cutting the dash sort of defeats the purpose of installing the console.

Yes, sarcasm. Sam, if you haven't tried using the search function yet, it actually works very well! For example, if you search "MudUK dash Tithonus" this is the first (and only) result:

Yup that was me. Its dead easy to do, but be sure you want to do it first as you do have to take a saw (I actually used a Dremel with a cut of wheel) to your lower dash. I'm really pleased with how mine turned out though. I've not added any more to it yet, but only due to time and fund limitations. More is planned.

I did not have to cut the dash on my NAS90, but I am unsure if your dash is any different. I have seen a couple of people cut the dash (like the pic you posted) to allow them to mount a single or double din receiver down low. In your picture, had they flipped the position of the switches and the receiver, there would be no need for cutting. I mounted my receiver where the gauges are in your pic.

Anyone actually removed a EX MOD center switch and went back to standard switch for headlights?

I did this...and eventually had to get an automotive electrician to finish it. Largely this was due to bad wiring from where I bought it from. Anyways, I can take pictures of how they set it up.
